CATCH Takes the Hudson

Intentionally unorthodox, this flamboyant group of nomadic performers wants to stagger its audience by blowing the lines between artistic disciplines. Expertly toeing the fine line between opacity and art, "CATCH is a carefully curated grab bag," according to Caleb Hammons, co-curator of CATCH. On July 5, the performer's extravagance will juxtapose Basilica Hudson's traditional bones to further jar viewers. Performer R. B. Schlather, an up-and-coming Hudson Valley opera director, will be showing his opera that minimizes the traditionally grandiose art form to a contemporary, relaxed scale. CATCH encourages their performers to strip away formalities in front of an audience that is receptive to everything outlandish. As Hammons says, "We like to think of every show as a snapshot of what is happening in contemporary performance." Catchseries.org
